PowerMac to Intel CarbonCopyCloner using Tiger
Posted on 2009-07-02
I'm cloning a Powermac to an Intel Mac. From what I've read, it should be possible. I've held "t" down and put the Intel into Slave mode. The primary drive on the Intel will remain intact...for now. I'm using the secondary drive to carboncopy the OS of the PowerMac to the secondary drive of the Intel. Then, I was going to try to do a dual boot to see if it would boot up by holding the Alt/option key down at startup (from a previous post tip I posted recently).
However, I'm getting a message on the CarbonCopyCloner software...
The target Volume will not boot PowerPC Macs. PowerPC Macs can only boot from a hard drive that is partitioned with the Apple Partition Map Format.
...well, of course, I don't want the target volume to boot a powerpc mac because it will be an intel Mac. But, I do want it to be able to boot this on the intel Mac. I just want to get some input before I start this process.
Thanks for any input.
Btw, the intel is an Xserver.
